A Tier-1, global automotive supplier operating in 15 business segments and 150 manufacturing facilities needed to enhance its legacy system and improve its ability to plan and manage its "Engineering Change Request" process. To do so, it wanted to automate several manual processes, and upgrade its aging legacy PDM system. Its goals included improving response time, securing intellectual property and improving collaboration within the organization, which featured 4,000 design engineers working concurrently, across the globe. At the outset, the Mahindra Satyam team implemented Windchill's "PDM, Product View, Project Link" module (v6.2.6) to streamline the engineering change management process.
